Tales of woe and broken macbooks

I searched the forums. And people tell horrible stories about macbook ram upgrades going awful.

What is the status right now? I ordered the little MB yesterday and await its arrival on october 11th with bated breath. I did of course ignore the 2 gb ram upgrade that Apple offered for the low sum of 669$ (Vat included at least).

I figured a few sticks of G.skill or AData would do it. But then I read these tales of despair and broken dreams. Not to mention broken macbooks.

What is the current status of upgrading ram in a macbook?

Aparat from being robbed by apple, which options do I have for memory upgrades that will install with certainty? I do not want to apply pressure with cooking utensils or having to use calipers to measure PCB thickness.

Is the Kingston KTA-MB667 a sure fit?
Is the G.skill 1 MB sodimms still troublesome?

Have Apple changed their memory slots or is it still crappy and fragile? What is the status?
